Charming apartment, great location & attentive owner

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent week in Florence while visiting our daughter who is studying abroad at the Lorenzo de Medici university! The apartment was perfectly situated close to supermarkets, laundry services, and many bistros and restaurants. It was a very short walk to the Duomo area of city , which seems to be the center of city. Rita, owner, was there to check us in & show is around the apartment. She gave us some great insights to the city and even did our laundry at end of week because of our remaining week of travels they Italy. I would recommend this apartment, comfortably fit our family of 5 (kids ages 19,20 & 22) and 2 full bathrooms with very modern amenities worked perfectly!

Recommended! Lovely apartment in great location. Excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I rented this apartment for a two week stay. Arrangements went very smoothly and the owners (and HomeAway) were a pleasure to work with.

My mother and I were dragging luggage, so instead of walking the three blocks, we took a taxi from the Santa Maria Novella train station (10 EU). Next to gigantic wooden double doors, we found the name on the buzzer and rang. The owner and her daughter (both quite charming) were there to greet us. They gave us a tour and made sure we had what we needed.

The giant door requires a shove to open and the hallway is dark until you switch the lights. There are a total of 38 steps to the entry of this 3rd level apartment. The door opens to a hallway leading to the bright and comfortable living/dining room on the right and the master suite on the left. The kitchen is past the living room and is well equipped. Also off the entry hall is a narrow concrete stairway of 19 steps up to the second bedroom and bathroom.

The roof terrace is lovely, but accessible only through the second bedroom and up a metal stairway of 10 steps.

The platform beds and bedding were very comfortable. All the linens were of nice quality and quantity. The owner cleaned the apartment and provided us with fresh everything after our first week. She was wonderful!

The apartment is on the same block with a convenient market and many good restaurants and pubs. From the train station, past the Duomo, to the Arno River is only about a 1 mile walk, but it's not an easy walk. Tall buildings, narrow streets, people, traffic, construction, and cobble stone made for a wonderful challenge every time we left the apartment.

We loved our time in Florence and consider ourselves very fortunate to have landed in such a perfect apartment!

Wonderful apartment, with a great host!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is newly renovated, very spacious and has a wonderful rooftop terrace, that is so quiet and relaxing! It has 2 bedrooms, the 2nd bedroom is on the upper floor so you never feel like your living on top of each other. Both beds are quite comfortable. It is a short walk from the train station, as well as walking distance to all the sights of Florence. Rita, the host, was such a pleasure to work with! Her response time to emails was great! She was there to greet us when we arrived and was flexible with our arrival time. If I return to Florence, I would absolutely want to stay here again!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great. The air conditioning worked really well, which was so nice for such a hot city! The apartment is big and clean and the view from the porch was pretty. The host was there to great us with the keys when we arrived and was available for all questions that we had. I would stay here again if I ever visit Florence in the future.
